Economic populism and the progressive plan for America
This week, Senate Democrats block President Obama’s push for fast-track authority on the TPP just as NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio releases his new ‘Contract with America’ for the left, and Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz publishes a new economic agenda for fighting inequality. Host Dorian Warren talks with the Roosevelt Institute’s Mike Konczal, the National Employment Law Project’s Tsedeye Gebreselassie, and independent journalist Sarah Jaffe about the left’s insurgent economic populism. Plus, news on the fallout from the New York Times’ blockbuster Nail Salon exposé, a big victory for the fight for $15 movement in New York, and the subtle form of political coercion affecting millions of American’s at their workplace. Nerding Out airs Thursdays at 11am ET on Shift.
